If you are driving through Page in Arizona then Horseshoe Bend is somewhere that you have to take an hour out of your day to view... Here are my top 6 tips for visiting Horseshoe Bend.
When I got back to my car I was looking for something to do to fill the time until my tour around Antelope Canyon and en-route to the Glen Canyon Dam I stumbled across this little gem of a hike 'The Hanging Garden Trail'
The Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world and somewhere I just had to visit especially considering before visiting the Grand Canyon I had only been to Victoria Falls!! So it's now two down and five to go!
I arrived at the Grand Canyon on day 4 of my most recent American road trip after a doing a big night in Las Vegas and a 2 day hike across Havasu Falls so needless to say my energy levels were not at their highest by the time I reached the park. That being said its the Grand Canyon and the excitement levels were sky high!
Here is my experience of my day viewing the Grand Canyon
My last Vlog/Blog was about hiking into Havasu Falls and the beauty that awaits when you get there.
Well guess what? It gets even better!!! Beaver Falls, Mooney Falls & Havasu Creek take you away from earth as you know it and take you to a place of beauty you can only dream of..
Now Unfortunately when booking my camping in Havasupai I only booked one night and by the time I realised my mistake the following night had sold out! This meant I had to try and do all my exploring in one day which by all means was very tough but was so worth it as the sights that great you between Havasu Falls and Beaver Falls are truly out of this world!
In March 2018 I was one of the lucky 150 people that get to experience Havasu Falls.
The Hike is challenging, the cost of camping is high but the reward is something special that will live with me for the rest of my life! Check out the Vlog & my top tips for hiking one of the most unique locations in the world, Havasu Falls.
Date May 2016
Location Las Vegas to Vancouver via Mammoth Lakes, Lake Tahoe, Crater Lake, Portland & Seattle
Who Matthew Coleman, Martin Spencer, Myself & Carl McCloskey (In order of appearance on the video), all old colleague mates.
After 3 nights in Vegas a road trip up to Vancouver seemed like the best thing to do
Over the course of 2 and a half weeks we were lucky enough to hike around Mammoth Lakes, Fallen Leaf Lake, Lake Tahoe, Mount Tallac and Crater Lake
This was the first time I ever used a GoPro which is fairly obvious when you see the shaky camera, constant footage of my knuckles and random transfers from my wrist to hand.... I also produced this with a free version of Animoto hence the horrible banners on the side....
That all being said the hiking was beautiful with literally no one to be seen for miles
